Barossa Eden Valley Grenache Rosé
Vineyard: Northern Eden Valley with parcels of fruit across the Barossa region.
Season: Exceptional quality was achieved from the 2019 vintage but extremely limited quantities produced; due to the lower than average rainfall recordings. Frost disrupted the first vine buds in spring and throughout flowering which again reduced overall wine grape supply. The dry ripening season through summer kept disease pressure to a minimum and cooler high country breezes allowed the grapes to ripen for a vintage of premium quality.
Winemaking: Not Your Grandma’s Rosé is made as a true rosé (picked earlier than typical red wine). 62% of the blend is old vine Grenache which is co-fermented with 30% of old vine Mourvèdre/Mataro. The remaining 8% is an aromatic blend of Riesling, Gewürtztraminer, and Weißer Herold; also known as the Kerner grape variety.
